Lockdown Update

I’m sure you are all relieved about the government's step-by-step plan to end lockdown but perhaps a little anxious about what this means. For all of us it is going to take some adjustment and the plan is a best case scenario, so some of the dates may move. The Age Exchange team are busy looking at all the details and working out when we will re-open and what we will do first. We are still going to be focused on safety first but know, that seeing people again will bring us all some joy. Watch this space for updates and we are so looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Please take care and stay safe.

We know last year has been hard for everyone and we thank everyone for their support.

Age Exchange Gallery

We are delighted to have launched the new Age Exchange Gallery. Our virtual gallery has been created so we can show you the wonderful art works the many participants of our services have created since March 2020 when the pandemic hit. The art works in our gallery have been created by service users living with dementia and their carers. We have been inspired by the beautiful and moving art works they have created during such a challenging time for each of them. We have called our first exhibition “Lockdown."


We would like to thank Arts Council England for supporting Virtual Day Care and making this exhibition possible.
